>>> if 9 == 9:
elif that:

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Elif is higlighted.

The "elif" needs to be indented to the same level as the "if".

Yeah that's one of the things that first aggravated me when I first learned Python never mind not using elseif like 99% of the other languages!
Since whitespace matters also unlike 99% of other languages a good Python editor is essential since I used the one that came with Python and it never alerted me to silly mistakes like this.
